There's a Baby Coming...

So now that the news is officially "out", I want to show you all how the hubby and I announced the news to our parents. We had them all over for dinner and led them into our "extra bedroom" which has been nothing but a storage room since we moved in. We told them that we had finally cleaned out the room so we opened the door for them to see a newly empty room and this is what they saw...

Brent had painted the entire room including trim just in time for the surprise and I snagged the rug on sale from a website online. Whether we have a boy or a girl (Brent is predicting boy), we wanted to keep the room a neutral option so we went with a pale blue-green for the walls. We're thinking an animal themed nursery might be perfect. 

(The sweet blanket was made by my grandmother who has passed. My mom gave it to me a while back since she knows I love those types of blankets and I can't wait to use it for our little one.)

Needless to say the parents, especially the soon-to-be grandmamas, were very surprised and excited. They also got a special "Our First Grandchild" frame to take home. 

We had a lot of fun. Announcing to the sisters was fun too, but I'll tell you about that later. 

WARNING: Now that the news is out, be prepared for lots of baby/nursery themed posts. I'm pretty sure that's why I haven't had it in me to post very often. I'm too baby focused to write about anything else or to accomplish anything else around the house. You've been warned.

Until next time...
